Wells Fargo Insurance Executive Recognized As Industry Leader

Stock quotes in this article: WFC

Wells Fargo Insurance, part of Wells Fargo & Company (NYSE: WFC), announced today that Liliana Salazar, senior vice president with its National Employee Benefits Practice and based in Torrance, California, was named one of the Top 25 “Women to Watch” by Business Insurance ®, a leading publication in the insurance industry.

The “Women to Watch” honor is awarded annually to recognize influential female leaders and executives who provide exemplary work in the fields of insurance, risk management and employee benefits. The honorees are selected based on evaluation by Business Insurance ® editors and are judged based on recent achievements, influence in the field and contributions to the advancement of women in the workplace. The 2013 “Women to Watch” Awards Luncheon was held today in New York where current and past honorees came together to celebrate the achievements of women within the industry.

"On behalf of Wells Fargo Insurance, we are excited Liliana has been honored as one of the ‘Women to Watch’ by Business Insurance,” said Laura Schupbach, head of Wells Fargo Insurance. “As healthcare reform continues to alter the employee benefits landscape, Liliana’s continued leadership, industry expertise and knowledge of the law have helped many organizations understand and feel more confident about their benefits planning. She is an invaluable resource to both our customers and Wells Fargo Insurance.”

In her role, Salazar specializes in employee benefits compliance, directing a team dedicated to providing guidance and resources to advise employers on their benefits responsibilities under federal, state, and local laws, including defined contribution plans and consumer driven health care plans. Salazar was also instrumental in developing Wells Fargo’s Health Care Reform Analyzer (HCRA) tool 1, a solution available to Wells Fargo Insurance’s clients and prospects, to help organizations forecast the financial impact of the ACA on their employee benefit plans. Salazar is a frequent speaker at various industry events relating to healthcare reform.
